4:37pm ET: Aaron Boone said Gregorius has a “pretty significant” bruise and could wind up on the disabled list. Sigh. I guess this means Gleyber Torres takes over at shortstop with some combination of Neil Walker, Ronald Torreyes, and Tyler Wade getting time at second.
3:13pm ET: Gregorius has a bruised left heel and is going for tests, the Yankees say. I guess his heel hit the ground hard when he landed after the collision? Not sure what else it could’ve been. Hopefully everything comes back okay and Didi can avoid the disabled list. Fingers crossed.
